Granola Bars; Pizzettes; $$$

Meals over the next several months will have a common theme: saving money. One way to do this is to eat the food that I already own. I have a ton of food stored in my cupboards, so I've been going through them to see what I can make. On Saturday I threw together some goji berries, apricots, prunes, craisins, dates, peanuts, almonds, oats, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, ground flax and chocolate.

And then I followed a random recipe to granola bar-ize them. This one looked good, but this recipe won, due to supreme easy-ness. It also scored points for letting me use an ancient can of evaporated milk (sweetened with maple syrup). (Possibly a bad idea... time will tell.)

We made pizzettes for dinner to use up even more things I had in my fridge... artichokes, black olives, capers and basil, with feta, cheddar and gruyère cheese. I roasted some red peppers for these too.

Pizzette #1. I made a quadruple batch of dough so that I could freeze some of it for future pizzette-making / ingredient-getting-rid-of occasions.

Pizzette #2. MmmmMMMMMmmmmmmmmmM.
